Versatile transport racks
“Carsten Böttcher revolutionizes the transport business with his idea”
District of Gütersloh. “Anyone who wants to make a difference should become self-employed,” beams Carsten Böttcher. The 52-year-old has implemented this in the truest sense of the word and founded the company ELOORAC Transport systems in Rietberg four years ago.
During the search for optimisation possibilities for the logistics of construction elements, the idea for a pluggable transport system was born at some point, with which doors, windows and glass can be transported upright. “You wouldn’t believe it, but there were really only these bulky transport racks made of metal or wood, which are in the way for everyone and can only be retrieved with great difficulty.” Because of this, Böttcher developed a dismountable transport system made of wood, which can be fixed on Euro pallets. This frame is certified and patented. It is available in different sizes and can be extended as desired.
“I’ve never been afraid of self-employment,” says Böttcher. “But I would have imagined it much easier to establish my product on the market.” In the meantime, ELOORAC supplies many well-known global players, nationally and internationally. The stages for „Rock am Ring“ or the backdrops of the Deutsches Schauspielhaus in Hamburg are also transported and stored with the system from Rietberg. “You just need an incredible amount of time and patience. But even more important is a family that supports you. Without the support of my wife and children my whole business would be doomed to failure.”
Böttcher looks optimistically into the future and has many more ideas: “I am looking forward to what is still to come. Carsten Böttcher was supported by the pro Wirtschaft GT on the subject of commercial space, because the ELOORAC building is to be expanded in the near future.
His story will be published, along with many other founding stories, at this year’s founders’ forum, which will take place on September 24th at Möhler Castle. At the Founder’s Forum, other founders will tell about their path and encourage people to become independent. Registrations accepts Aleksandra Blagojević, Gründungsberaterin with pro economics GT, gladly over www.prowi-gt.de. The participation is free of charge.
Pro Wirtschaft GT also supported us at the beginning with certain projects. Therefore we would like to thank the Pro Wirtschaft GT in this way once again. A special thanks goes to Mr. Albrecht Pförtner. Through his initiative and active support we will expand our warehouse for transport racks in the foreseeable future.
